This exciting new fun worship album by Ishmael's erstwhile lead guitar man is a great resource for children's events. Doug's unique blend of rap, rock and youthful voices brings fresh meaning to old favourites "Father God I Wonder", "Righteousness, Peace" and "Lord, I Lift Your Name On High". Douggie's new worship songs (I particularly liked "We Want To See Jesus Lifted High", which Noel Richards used in 'Warrior') display zest and variety in composition and presentation, ably supported by an appealing backing team. As children and adults sing along they can't fail to know that having Jesus as their friend is not only fun, but it's also a place where things happen and lives are changed. My own favourites are "The Wobble Song" followed without taking a breath by "You Need To Natter" (brilliantly echoed by Ed The Duck). Noel Richards warns, "Watch out children, your parents will want to get their hands on it!" So be it.
